Jason Momoa's Unexpected Oscars Look Is Turning Heads

The 2022 Oscars aired tonight, and as always, the red carpet gives us a rare glimpse into Hollywood's hottest stars off the big screen, wearing the finest clothing and trendiest looks. One stylish celebrity that fans always look forward to seeing is Jason Momoa.

Momoa revealed to Entertainment Tonight that he just had hernia surgery the day before the awards ceremony, but wouldn't have missed the Oscars for anything. "I've got to present eight amazing awards," Momoa told the outlet. He also got to see his stepdaughter and "The Batman" actress Zoë Kravitz present during the awards. 

While he is known for his roles as a hero, Momoa is looking forward to his new character in the upcoming "Fast & Furious 10," in which he'll be portraying a villainous character. "I can't give away too much, but I'm excited to work with the cast. I've never been a part of that, so it'll be fun," Momoa told Entertainment Tonight. Recently, Momoa starred as Duncan Idaho in "Dune," which won more than a handful of awards during the Oscars (via Vanity Fair, ABC News). And just as "Dune" cleaned up at the awards ceremony, Momoa cleaned up well with his stylish red carpet appearance.

The ultimate Hollywood heartthrob, Momoa has always stunned fans with his well-curated red carpet looks, and he certainly didn't disappoint during the 2022 Academy Awards.

Jason Momoa stunned fans with his suave look and sleek plait

Typically known for his voluminous waves and more casual red carpet looks, Jason Momoa opted for a sophisticated style at the 2022 Oscars (via Allure). Momoa's luscious locks were styled in a sleek French braid that was tied with a blush pink scrunchie, bringing back the ultimate 1990s nostalgia, per People. According to Entertainment Tonight, Momoa also wore a matching black scrunchie on his wrist. 

Twitter users went wild for the "Aquaman" actor's new hairdo, with one user tweeting, "Jason Momoa with the same French braid I gave my American Girl doll in 1997." According to Elle, this wasn't the first time the Hollywood hunk has sported a pink scrunchie, either. During the 2019 Academy Awards, he was spotted sporting a pink-beige scrunchie on his wrist, which complemented his dusty rose suit.

He wore a black monochromatic suit, paired with a black shirt and tie (via Page Six). To tie the look together, Momoa wore black thick, square-framed glasses. He also showed his support for Ukraine by wearing a blue and yellow pocket square that stood out from his black suit. He also vocalized his support for the country, telling red carpet reporters, "Glory to Ukraine."

While reconciliation rumors have been swirling around Momoa and Lisa Bonet, Momoa notably attended this year's Oscars ceremony solo. The couple has been married for four years and together for 17 years total. Momoa revealed their separation in January.
